Penn Medicine's Trauma Center is accredited by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation as a Level 1, Regional Resource Trauma Center and is nationally and internationally recognized as a model program for other hospitals. For traumatically injured or critically ill patients in need of immediate care, consider the vast resources at Penn Medicine and the Trauma Center at Penn.
In February 2015, Penn Medicine's Level 1 Trauma Center moved from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania to the Pavilion for Advanced Care at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. A new 178,000 square-foot, acute care building, the Pavilion for Advanced Care provides enhanced capacity for emergency, surgical, trauma and critical care patients.
